Have a look at Royal Worcester

With just over a month to go (at the time of writing) there is an increasing choice in the souvenirs available for the Royal Wedding. (In case you have forgotten it is on April 29th 2011!) Amazon.com are selling some Royal Worcester commemorative items.

A brief History of Royal Worcester

Royal Worcester was founded as a Worcester China factory by a Dr Wall in 1751. The original Worcester company was awarded the "Royal Warrant " in 1789, which entitled them to display that the manufactured for their majesties. Three separate manufacturers courted Royal attention  for the next ninety years, manufacturing for notables, such as the Coronation Service for William IV in 1830 and Admiral Nelson and Lady Hamilton who called in the factory in 1802 and bought a dinner service.  In 1840, the three companies merged and in 1862 became "Royal Worcester". The company has a long history, predating the founding of the British Museum  and seeing events from the accession to the throne of George III, to the Boston T ea Party and the American Declaration of Independence.  In modern years production has moved from its English base in Worcester and in 2009 the company was bought out by Portmeirion.
